After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction.
The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful Romulan from the future creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochran makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
After stopping off at Starbase Yorktown, a remote outpost on the fringes of Federation space, the USS Enterprise, halfway into their five-year mission, is destroyed by an unstoppable wave of unknown aliens. With the crew stranded on an unknown planet and with no apparent means of rescue, they find themselves fighting against a ruthless enemy with a well-earned hatred of the Federation and everything it stands for. Only a rebellious alien warrior can help them reunite and leave the planet to stop this deadly menace from beginning a possible galactic war.Written by

While it seems convenient that the Franklin worked so well for the crew of the Enterprise when the original crew was unable to repair it, there are a few things to take into consideration. When the crew of the Franklin gave up attempting to repair the ship they instead began to use the nebula and the drones to lure and attack nearby ships. If Jaylah and the aliens she saved Scotty from are anything to go by, they've been doing this for a while to a large variety of ships. We don't actually know how old Jaylah was when she found herself alone on the planet, nor how old she is now. It is entirely possible that, at the time her ship was destroyed, she was old enough to have been taught a few basics of engineering that, with time and a little natural genius not to mention extreme necessity, she was able to turn into a working a knowledge. While we don't know how long she's been there, it is obvious from her initial encounter with Scotty that she has spent at least a portion of her time scavenging parts from the ships Krall and his crew rain down on the planet and bringing them back to her "house" aka the Franklin. While it may seem surprising that she was able to repair the Franklin when its crew could not, she was only able to do so once Krall and his men, aka the Franklin's original crew, began to lure ships to the planet for her to salvage. By the time she had enough parts to fix the vessel it is safe to assume that they had completely abandoned all thought of returning to their original ship and heading home. It is unclear exactly how much time the crew of the Enterprise spends on the planet, but at least one full day passes, the majority of which Scotty spends on the Franklin. Considering that Jaylah has spent a considerable number of years patching up the systems on the Franklin with whatever salvage she can find, and also taking into consideration Scotty's well-established genius, it is not entirely surprising that he was able to take it the last leg and repair it completely.

The original concept of Star Trek, millennia ago, explored the interpersonal relations of the characters, morality, chain of command and so much more. The shonky sets and pre-CGI effects did not detract from the thoughtfulness of the writing.
None of this applies in the "Beyond" disaster.
The only thing I can say in its defence is that the CGI effects are up to standard - although they are often so bang-bang-bang that they lose the plot.
It appears to me that the direction of this movie comes from the "Hello Kitty" far East mentality, where a logical plot line and exploration of the characters' motives play very much second best to infantile effects - however well they are done here..
I managed some forty minutes so the ending cannot be reviewed by me. Do yourself a favour and don't bother even with forty minutes.
I was not a great fan of most of the previous Star Trek films - they lost so much from the original TV concepts - but this one is just dire.
